We Are Young

Clapping and dancing
And prancing so jolly
Laughing and drinking
Around the old bonfire

Going to parties
Staying out late
Sleepovers without sleep
Just pizza and cake

Road trips; long driving
No destination in mind
A bucket list of goals
Unrealistic at the time

Living everyday
To have fun and skip class
Not giving a care
Not a care if it's your last

Creating many "first-times"
Your first A, your first date
Your first boyfriend, your first F
Your first heartbreak

Figuring out who you are
And exactly where you belong
What you plan to do in life
When you're finally on your own

Cherish these precious years
Because they only come once
There is nothing like the time
When we are young

The author's comments:
Life is a beautiful thing. I just hope that everyone can look at it as I do, with nothing but hope and joyous memories. Believe, Live, Conquer, that's what I always say! Trust me, it gets me to look at life in an entirely different light.
